Vintage Magazine: Modern Priscilla, 1923

Another magazine cover and advertisement plucked from my collection. The Modern Priscilla was a precursor to the Women’s Day magazines we know today: sewing patterns, recipes, cooking tips and trends fill the pages. These magazines don’t have the wit or flash of, say, the era’s Vogue and Cosmopolitans, but they are still fun to read. Color ads are few, but do they ever pop!
